We are looking forward to the Summer Reading Challenge which launches in local libraries on 9th July. This year’s theme – ‘Gadgeteers’ – will spark children’s curiosity about the world around them. With resources and activities from the Science Museum Group, the Challenge focuses on inspiring children to see the science and innovation behind everyday objects, showing that reading and science are for everyone.

In Spring term eighteen children completed their challenges from their Ready Steady Read grid earning themselves a reward of a fun PE session. Photos will be on the Literacy news page. Well done and keep reading!
